Earthsong - Elgin, Suzette Haden, and Squier, Susan Merrill (Afterword by), and Vedder, Julie (Afterword by)

On a world where economic survival depends on communication and trade with alien species, linguistics has taken on a power unknown today. In this world, 13 families of genetically bred linguists hold the key to Earth's future because only they can translate during alien trade summits. Soon a battle of the sexes will ravage this land, however.
